Video comms specialist Imago has inked an exclusive distribution deal with US-based projection and interactive whiteboard technology manufacturer Luidia.
Ian Vickerage, managing director of Imago Group, said Luidia's products should appeal to various business and education customers.
"We expect it to put whiteboard-style technology on the business map in a way that traditional whiteboards have failed to do so far," he claimed.
Luidia's products are not expensive, Vickerage said, which should suit the cash-strapped education market.
"There is a real opportunity here for resellers looking to provide customers with technology that can replace their broken whiteboards at a fraction of the cost, or make fresh use of existing whiteboards to improve communication and collaboration between teachers and students," Vickerage added (pictured, left).
Luidia offers a device called eBeam Classic Projection that is aimed at converting traditional whiteboards, or any suitable flat surfaces, into interactive displays. Digital files on a laptop can then be put through a projector and shown to an audience; for example, in a business meeting.
One specific product, eBeam Edge Whiteboard, harnesses a computer to take content from a traditional whiteboard and turn it into a digital file. Other products include wireless tablet hardware.
